In Topic: Should we be the North Carolina Panthers? Map says yes

I'll recognize SC as part of the ownership of this team when they start footing the bill for the stadium. Until then, it owns to the state of the taxpayers that do.


In Topic: Should we look at bringing in a new kicker this offseason? Or stick with Gano?

Clear signs of a franchise spoiled by great kicking for its entire existence. Kasay to the uncertain years after his departure into Gano. Gano has missed a few this year no doubt. Ones he would rather have back. But you can't throw out the baby with the bath water. He's the best in the league on the kickoff and keeping the ball away from returns on special teams. He's also one of the strongest legs in the game, giving us a chance from unreasonable distances. Those two factors alone are enough to put up with SOME inconsistency. He'd be the first to say this wasn't his best season, but we've seen him kick much better than this. The tough thing about being a kicker is that you're asked to make about 30 plays a year and if you have an unsuccessful outcome on more than 3 or 4 of them, your season looks terrible. He's the same kicker he was last year. He'll be fine. The least of our concerns at this point.


In Topic: SI Most Disappointing - Star

I don't know why people get offended by articles like this. It's true. Players have down years. Star set the bar pretty damn high last season and his success hasn't continued. NT isn't some magical position where you can take up space and still be judged as successful based upon arbitrary metrics. At the end of the day, you still need to have tape that gets you noticed and the truth is that Star had PLENTY last season and virtually none this year. That's a disappointment.

It's pretty much in several places on the Internet. He was offered a $4.5 million contract per year (for a still unspecified number of years) in favor of a $3.5 million one-year contract that was laced with another $2 million in incentives (which needless to say that he probably won't meet because he only has 243 yards with 3 TDs.

 

Did you post the wrong link or did you mean to post the link that directly contradicted what you said in favor of saying that Carolina never made him an offer?

It's important that we have WR terrible enough to run the right routes the wrong way so they maintain the best possible coverage against themselves.
